Your inability to debate my statements as opposed to your perception is nothing short of a fallacy.Is your ego so fragile that you have to demand an apology? do you or do you not support letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the so called rich? If not then I apologize, if you do then my statement stands.
Back to discussing me as opposed to my statements.I am entitled to my opinion and what I see is someone who advertises themselves as a Libertarian acting and arguing like a liberal.
It reduces tax revenues by $36 billion. Can you deal with that?The Thread topic is GOP plan to extend tax cuts for the rich adds 36 billion to the deficits. Is that what you believe?
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
"Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911
No one has been able to prove that treating the overtaxed more fairly decreases revenues. That claim is based on a false premise that everything else will remain constant which is complete BS
and the only thing that adds to the deficit is government spending. Get rid of more spending than there is revenue and there is no problem.
Of course that would cost the dems votes because their voters tend to be net tax consumers
The fact is if there is one then there is on more person not paying taxes that is capable of paying taxes yet you have no problem with taxing the rich more. Just another example of pure jealousy on your part. It is my opinion that you just don't like anyone that makes more than you.Goldenboy219;1058967582]If you were unable to articulate the example (based on a family of 4 with with two children under the age of 17 making less than $50,000/year), then it would have been best not to make the statement at all. The example was clear as day to me. What seems to be the trouble?
I have refuted your statements. Obviously you don't like being challenged and proven wrong.Your inability to debate my statements as opposed to your perception is nothing short of a fallacy.
You are advertising Libertarian and acting like a liberal.Back to discussing me as opposed to my statements.
Nope, no proof that the tax cuts for the rich reduced revenue by 36 billion nor is there proof that the behavior of the rich will remain the same if their taxes go up. guess all those books you read didn't teach you about personal behavior. I would have thought that someone as intelligent as you would understand the multiplier affect of personal spending on economic growth. Apparently not.It reduces tax revenues by $36 billion. Can you deal with that?

Here's where I see Republicans saying one thing but unwilling to make the tough choices as well and do what's right. Here they say the deficit's too high, we're borrowing money and we're treating the Treasury like it's our personal printing press. Okay then...why not make a hardline decision and give up on letting the tax cuts expire for those who make $250K if it is shown through whatever non-partisan egency that doing so will reduce the deficit? If it can be demonstrated mathmatically that taking this action would allow the Treasury to take in revenue and, thus paydown the deficit, why would you not be in favor of this?
Are you so stuck on principle that you'd put your partisanship over what's best for the country?
